AHAM Offers Tips to Save Energy During Heat Waves


The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) has published a list of tips to save money while staying cool during the hot summer months.

Tips include:

  • Don’t turn air conditioning too low – a room that’s too cold may add excessive moisture to the air.
  • Clean the air conditioning unit – use a plastic scrub brush to clean coils and vents, and the brush attachment on a vacuum to get rid of leftover dirt.
  • Keep the portable air conditioners’ hoses straight – kinks in the hose reduce efficiency.

Learn more, including tips on how to save money running other household appliances in hot weather, in the AHAM news item.
